Armada is a conceptual portable 3D scanner that can rapidly capture the physical forms of objects in an editable 3D format and maintains a Z axis resolution of .004 inches up to 5 feet from object. Through triangulation between its two angled cameras and a cross-beam laser Armada could create a 3D scan of any size object. The cameras are self-positioned and they track the movement of the laser as it travels over the surface of the object, providing the three necessary reference points to create a single point. From this, a cloud of points are created and assembled into polygon map. Over the course of the scan, Armada creates thousands of cloud-points and merges into polygons to form a 3D model.

After scanning, Armada syncs with your iOS or Android phone through bluetooth and the finished scans are then stored in a library. The scan can afterwards be exported as STP files to 3D software.
